Enlarge (credit: Getty | Aurich) Current and former AT&T customers will get refunds or bill credits totaling $88 million within the next 75 days, satisfying the terms of a settlement between AT&T and the Federal Trade Commission, the FTC announced today . The AT&T customers were victimized by “mobile cramming,” charges for third-party services that were placed on their phone bills without the customers’ authorization. AT&T agreed to pay for the refunds and credits in a settlement  announced in October 2014 , and it agreed to notify current customers about the process for applying for refunds. The process, which was led by a third-party contractor that validated each customers’ claim , is finally just about over.

Customers were allowed to apply for refunds for any unauthorized third-party charges that occurred in 2009 and later. Read 4 remaining paragraphs | Comments
